In 2020 we asked Nebraskans to send us their original poetry about local food. The response received was incredible.The poems make us laugh, cry and take notice of the small beauties we can find every day in the garden, the farm, the market and our kitchens.
Big thanks to all who submitted. Find all the poems in the bar to the right.
